OUNDERS’ LETTER

We love to entertain at Pulp Design Studios, and we

are thrilled when our clients ask us to design great

spaces to welcome family and friends! This is our first

Entertaining Issue, and we’ve packed it full of homes,

ideas, and tips to make the most of the upcoming holiday season,

and beyond!

The issue also includes our boldest project ever, a color-filled home

that’s open to the elements on Seattle’s Lake Washington. It has

stunning views of the lake and the mountains, so the furniture

layout was key to take advantage of every line of sight. We also

have projects that go bold with black, that take an updated twist

on traditional, and that are designed with the right flow for soirees

and dinner parties.

Pulp’s Ultimate Entertaining Guide also gives you great tips for

setting the table, how to be the most welcoming host, and what the

best hostess gifts are for the season, as well as cocktail recipes, and

a fabulous playlist. All you need to do is send the invites.

We hope you enjoy this issue and, as always, reach out to us to ask

design questions, show us your Pulp, or send us photos of your

holiday parties!

ELEMENTS

Pulp’s BOLDEST Project Ever!

By folding in the glass doors, the

living room is open to the outdoors

with views that go from land to lake.

Location, location, location. This modern home’s

waterfront setting is the perfect backdrop

for this Pulp-client’s new construction home,

inspiring many of the incredible design details.

With floor-to-ceiling windows that can be opened to let

the rooms flow into the outdoor setting, the architecture

made the most of the mountain and lake views. The Pulp

design team worked closely with the clients, the builder,

and the architect for over two years, from initial planning

through to installation, to help these clients realize their

dream home.

The clients love to entertain, are a family of artists,

and have a love for travel. Pulp teamed up with the

architects to create open rooms with the furnishings

positioned to take advantage of the scenery. The team

created unique design details that were geared towards

creating, entertaining, and showcasing the soul of this

unique family.

While the architect crafted a modern and angular

structure to make the most of the views, the Pulp team

worked hard to develop layouts, finishes, lighting and

details that would add a warm counterbalance to the

strong architecture.

18

Luckily, these clients were not afraid of color, pattern,

or taking a risk - which is why they were drawn to Pulp

Design Studios in their exhaustive hunt for a designer.

Curating artful details, customizing furnishings, and

creating those special moments and wow-factors that

improve the daily experience are what sets Pulp apart,

and what makes this home’s interiors so special.

One of the fun parts of this project for the design

team was capturing the soul of the clients by hunting

for unique and one-of-a-kind accessories and

incorporating their family heirlooms. Each new piece

introduced was hand-selected specifically for these

clients during designer travels.

LIFT FOR

TRADITIONAL

A Modern Take on Classic Design

Sometimes a home doesn’t need a major

overall, but just a nip and tuck. Thatwas

what these Dallas clients needed for

their traditional home in a sought-after

neighborhood. They saw a neighbor’s house in

D Home magazine and when they found out it was

designed by Pulp Design Studios, they asked Pulp

to make a house call.

Since the home had amazing bones, the Pulp

design team prescribed a makeover through

paint, lighting, and furnishings. With a keen

sense of what their clients were looking for, Pulp

made clever design choices to completely overhaul

the home.

Now this traditional home is ready for modern

living, serving as the backdrop for entertaining

friends in fabulous style!

DARE to

go DARK

Don’t Let This Bold Hue Spook You!

Black may not be the first wall color

you think of when you’re ready to

redesign, but we think it’s worth a

second look! Deep and dark, black

can give a small space major drama, but it

can also add a cozy factor to larger rooms.

We love to use this bold color as a

counterpoint to light, or as a dramatic

surprise. It’s also a fantastic backdrop for

an art collection and provides context to a

textural surface.

Take a chance on this dark tone in your

home - we promise it’s a treat!

LEFT: This stunning black study (featured on our

cover and part of the project on pages 40-49) becomes

cozy in a darker hue.

ABOVE: Bathrooms

are the perfect place

for the drama of black

- we paired the color

with a graphic blackand-white

tile pattern

on the floor.

LEFT: If you’re

nervous about

using such a bold

color, try it as an

accent color, like in

shelves, lampshades,

or accessories.

We also used a

graphic wallpaper to

complement the black

designed.

backdrop for brightly colored

BEFORE and AFTER

A Retro Home Reimagined for Modern Living

Our clients were close to selling their beloved mid-century modern

home when they realized they just loved it too much to give it up.

But as much as they wanted to keep it, they also knew it needed a

major modern makeover.

We completely gutted the structure and gave them an addition, adding light

and space, and bringing in a contemporary vibe for the interiors. All of

which was perfect for this creative and modern family!

after

after

AN OPEN PLAN

THE ENTRY

Like most of the house, the original entrance

was dim and dull. Besides opening it up, we

also brought in a dramatic black wall and

a fabulous piece of art to make a big first

impression for visitors.

We took out a wall to open up the living room,

dining room, and kitchen into a large and airy

living space.

And we took inspiration from the age of the

1955 house to give it more of a mid-century

modern vibe than it originally had.

BEFORE/AFTER

FAMILY ROOM + FIREPLACE

The original living room had an awkward

corner fireplace covered in brick and the

celiings were low. We lifted the ceiling as

part of the addition and created a sleek wall

for the fireplace and television. You can also

see part of the new addition - the hallway

next to the living space.

THE KITCHEN

As historic as it might have been, the old kitchen

needed a major update. When we removed a wall

and opened up the living area, we were able to

expand the kitchen into a bright and modern space.

56

57


BEFORE/AFTER

THE MASTER BEDROOM

all new!

Mid-century homes are notorius for not putting

a lot of emphasis on bedroom design, so we had

blank canvases in this home.

The master bedroom had space, but no personality.

We updated the colors, added fabulous art, and

brought in more of the clients’ personalities. And in

the process, we created a beautiful oasis for them!

after

THE MASTER BATHROOM

The addition to the home gave us the room to create a spa bathroom as part of the master suite, including a wet room

that encloses the shower and a soaking tub. The clients told us this room is one of their favorite spaces in their house!

See the new home office we added to this home on the top of page 53!

BEFORE/AFTER

PLAY ROOM + CHILD’S BEDROOM

We took two of the original bedrooms and

created a cute suite for our clients’ little

boy. Between the fun and colorful playroom

and the adjoining bedroom is a jack-and-jill

bathroom.

That pink and black tile we had to remove was so common

ENTERTAINING

“I love open-plan rooms, but never know

how to set up my furniture. What’s the

best way to make these rooms feel cozy?”

Margaret Francis

We love open-plan rooms, too! They have a great flow, especially if you

entertain a lot. We like to create zones in open spaces - like a seating area, a

dining area, and so on. Use rugs to define each space, and think about using

your furniture as a “divider,” like we did with the sectional above. Designing

these specific areas will keep wide open spaces from seeming too cavernous!

ENTERTAINING TIPS

ENTERTAINING

Beth & Carolina Love to Throw a Party - Here Are Their Favorite Do’s and Don’ts!

DO

Have an eclectic guest list.

Interesting people make a party

fun and exciting!

Come up with a great playlist

that fits the mood of your party.

See our go-to list on page 77!

Light a candle a couple of hours

before the party to spruce up the

space, but put it out before guests

arrive so it’s not so strong.

Have some sort of food and

always display it in a creative way.

Be prepared for for extra guests -

just in case.

DON’T

Don’t take on all the food and

drink prep yourself. Rally the

troops and get some help!

Don’t skimp on the alcohol. A

signature cocktail is always

a good idea! You can make it

seasonal or part of a theme. It’s

also easy to make ahead of time.

Don’t forget the fresh flowers!

Always a must in the powder

room and through out the space.

Don’t forget beverages for the

non-alcohol drinkers

Don’t forget to tell your guests

what type of attire is required.

Use something

unique like these

handpainted leather

placemats to set

your table apart!

SETTING THE TABLE

There’s an art to setting a stunning table for a dinner party - here’s how it’s done!

Custom placemats

hand-painted for

Pulp Design Studios

by Spirit of Salt

Flowers, fruits,

herbs, plants all add

life to the table - be

daring with your table

decor. We added

porcupine quills to

this arrangement!

Florals by Kristen

Griffith-VanderYacht

Add a lot of visual

interest with different

heights, patterns,

colors, and textures.

No one should have to

reach for the salt and

pepper, so we like to

offer either personal

shakers at each place

setting, or at least

multiples at each end of

the table. It’s the little

things that mean a lot!

Who says you have

to use the same old

clear vase? We love

using objects with a

lot of visual interest

for our florals, like

this spiky footed

goblet by L’Objet.

LAST

WORD!

Hey, Beth &

Carolina:

What’s your

favorite go-to

cocktail ?

CVODKA

MANDARIN

SPRITZER

“Vodka and soda is always

a great choice. I’ve found

the magic combination

between the Waterloo

sparkling water, a dash

of bitters, and a squeeze

of mandarin.” - Carolina

CLASSIC

MANHATTAN

“I always opt for a

Manhattan to wind down.

It’s fun to play with

bitters to change the

flavors seasonally.” - Beth
